This wild form of asparagus was selected from long lived plants found at our farm and surrounding region. Stalking the wild asparagus is easy if it is growing in your garden.
Plant the seeds 1/4 inch deep and water regularly. The seeds have a rather tough seed coat and it takes a period of 2-4 weeks to sprout. The 2021 seed has a very good germination rate compared to previous years when we were propagating them. For this reason we thought this would be a good reason to make them available in the seed form. These work well in peat pots where you can out plant after a couple of months of cultivation in the pots.
